In this thorough and engaging book, Gabriel McKee explores the inherent theological nature of science fiction, using illustrations from television shows, literature, and films. Science fiction, he believes, helps us understand not only who we are but who we will become. McKee organizes his chapters around theological themes, using illustrations from authors such as Isaac Asimov and H. G. Wells, television shows such as Star Trek and The Twilight Zone , and films such as The Matrix and Star Wars . With its extensive bibliography and index, this is a book that all serious science fiction fans--not just those with a theological interest--will appreciate.
